Scream Factory had a big Facebook update for Friday the 13th. Here's a rundown of all the stuff they announced:

Nomads


Quote: From the Director of Predator and Die Hard, the action centers on Pierce Brosnan ( Tomorrow Never Dies) as a doctor battling demonic spirits. Also along for the ride: Lesley Anne-Down ( The Great Train Robbery), Mary Woronov ( Night of the Comet) and even 80s singer Adam Ant (!?)

Artwork you see here – sporting the classic original theatrical key art - is final. Street date has not been locked yet but we’ll keep you posted when its confirmed. No word to report yet on any extras.

Double Feature Blu-rays


Quote: Our celebration of this most awesome day starts off with the announcement of two blu-ray double features of four films making their debuts on blu-ray:
  • 1987’s genie-on-the loose

    The Outing[.h] will be paired with 1980’s Omen-inspired [h]The Godsend

    from Cannon Pictures.
  • Empire Pictures’

    Cellar Dweller

    and

    Catacombs

    (both from 1988) will share a double bill. John Carl Buechler ( Troll, Friday the 13th Part VII) directed

    Cellar

    and David Schmoeller ( Tourist Trap, Puppetmaster) directed

    Catacombs

    .

All are expected to land on 7/14 and will receive new widescreen HD transfers. Pre-order links will go up next month.

Many of you will recognize these films from our prior “All-Night Horror Marathon” budget DVD releases back in 2013. At the time, we were unable to create new transfers for a variety of reasons (mostly financial) which caused disappointment from fans who wanted better presentations. (We felt your pain too.) We are pleased to be able to “correct” this now and have chosen some of the more requested titles from those releases to experiment with. If they do well, perhaps more will follow.
Note: Run times for each movie will be exactly as they were on the DVD releases. There are no new extras as the costs spent are going to the transfers.
